If you are in an abusive relationship…

  • Call the police if you are in danger and seek medical attention if you are hurt.
  • Know that you are not alone and the abuse is not your fault.
  • Talk with somebody you trust: a friend or relative, someone from school or your community.
  • Listen to your instincts. Remember that you are the expert about your own life. Don’t let anyone talk you into doing something that’s not right for you.
  • Have a safety plan in case you are abused again.
